tomat

Remember I said that I wanted to get nasyid CD but wasn’t sure which one? I was driving home when I heard this verse playing on my stereo...

Ingat mati ingat sakit
Ingatlah saat kau sulit
Ingat ingat hidup cuma satu kali
Berapa dosa kau buat
Berapa kali maksiat
Ingat ingat sobat ingatlah akhirat


...and I decided that instant I would get Wali Band’s CD with that song in it.

Went to a very typical Chinaman music store. Was actually a bit skeptical if they had what I was looking for, but decided to just hop in and try my luck.

Nyonya: Cari apa miss?
Me: Wali Band ada? *half expecting her to say no*
Nyonya: Ada.. kaler kuning.. *pointing to the top shelf*

I picked it up and turned it over to see the song list. The song was there, awesome! Thinking that I was having trouble deciding, the nyonya came to me.

Nyonya: Mari tengok *asking me to give the CD to her*

She took a look at the price tag. It was RM 21.90.

Nyonya: Kalu lu mau saya bagi RM 20.

I nodded immediately.


Currently listening to Wali Band. Great talent.

By the way, the song that helped me decide is called “Tomat (Tobat Maksiat)”. Simple yet meaningful. Check it out below.



Tomat (Tobat Maksiat) – Wali Band

Dengarlah hai sobat
Saat kau maksiat
Dan kau bayangkan ajal mendekat
Apa kan kau buat
Kau takkan selamat
Pasti dirimu habis dan tamat

Bukan ku sok taat
Sebelum terlambat
Ayo sama-sama kita taubat
Dunia sesaat
Awas kau tersesat
Ingatlah masih ada akhirat

Astafighrullahal’adzim

Ingat mati ingat sakit
Ingatlah saat kau sulit
Ingat ingat hidup cuma satu kali
Berapa dosa kau buat
Berapa kali maksiat
Ingat ingat sobat ingatlah akhirat
Cepat ucap astafighrullahal’adzim

Pandanglah ke sana
Lihat yang di sana
Mereka yang terbaring di tanah
Bukankah mereka
Pernah hidup juga
Kita pun kan menyusul mereka

Astafighrullahal’adzim

Cepat ucap astafighrullahal’adzim

awesome, the chinese business people seems to have everything that you want, be it of the rarest that you think that maybe they would not have it. it goes to show why they remain among the best merchant for decades, (sejak zaman kesultanan melayu melaka lagi)
*lari topik daaa..

macam nak try gak la dengar wali band, i selalu dgr yang satu lagu ni je, the rest of the album pon ok ye? thanks for sharing,

k ayu,
best kan lagu ni! salam ramadan ke-18 buat k ayu juga. moga mendapat semakin banyak keberkatan menjelang akhir ramadan.

zu,
betul2, very catchy. message dia pun jelas. and as u said, the song buat kita terpanggil nak dengar dari mula sampai habis.
no prob zu, sekali sekala kita layan nasyid rock!

eB,
she was indeed! pandai layan customer. anyway i think i was the only customer masa tu :-D

jeet,
lari topik to an even more interesting topic, maka anda dimaafkan :-D
very true. no one should wonder why chinese are so good in doing business, the proof is clear as day. other races have much to learn from them.
this particular album memang best coz it's like a compilation of their popular songs. berbaloi rm20.
waduh.. kok banyak lagi perlu dipelajariiin.. masih nggak bisa nonton sinetron tanpa sarikata!
